Tiffany Wisniewski, audit manager based in our Poughkeepsie office, recently completed a year-long program with the Chamber Foundation of the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce. This program, titled Leadership Dutchess, consisted of monthly classes designed to cultivate strong leadership skills in each of its members. Topics included diversity, communication skills, project management and time management; the class was then tasked with putting these new skills to test in a final project, organizing a fundraiser event.
The proceeds of their fundraiser in May went back to the Chamber Foundation to benefit its various efforts, such as the annual scholarships it provides and future Leadership Dutchess classes. The hard work of Tiffany and her classmates paid off in a highly successful fundraiser. Members of the firm attended the Kentucky Derby-themed fundraiser in May to support Tiffany’s efforts. The class exceeded its fundraising goal of $25,000, with a grand total of $31,000. She graduated with her class in June, and speaks highly of her classmates.
Tiffany specializes in auditing as well as review and compilation engagements for non-profit and small business organizations. Tiffany is a board member of the Grace Smith House, as well as a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants.
This year the firm was a participating sponsor of the Hudson Valley Hot Air Balloon Festival. The festival attracted hundreds of people from all over the Hudson Valley to Dutchess County thanks to our friends at the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce. Among the festivities, our banner was hung on a brilliant rainbow balloon - see the pictures we snapped!
